Medical Malpractice: A Comprehensive Analysis, by Vasanthakumar N. Bhat, 2001, Westport, Conn. & London: Auburn House The author states in his preface that “the purpose of this book is to present a comprehensive overview of the medical malpractice system.” He also states that his goal “is to present an overview of the latest literature along with my observations about medical malpractice from a statistical analysis.” He achieves his first objective via an almost encyclopedic inclusion of hundreds of footnotes selected from the more than 70,000 research papers discovered in his search of MEDLINEplus, as well as numerous additional references found in social science and statistical journals. Indeed, the extent of the statistical content is such that the book is liable to be extremely intimidating to anyone who lacks a degree of statistical sophistication. Clearly, this is not a book for the average man or woman, despite the helpful Appendix I on statistical methods.
